A Bristol Old Vic Theatre School production.<br />A comic masterpiece, Tom Jones is deservedly a classic in English literature. Sheer fun and bursting with bawdy scenes, it's a tasty treat from beginning to end. Expelled from Mr Allworthy's country estate for his wild temper and sexual conquests, the good-hearted foundling Tom Jones loses his money, joins the army and pursues his beloved across Britain to London, where he becomes a kept lover,,, Our hero's actions were, in 1749, as shocking as they are funny today and joyously relevent to a modern day audience.
